Techpoint Pitch Friday: May edition in summary

by | May 21, 2018

The second edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday took place on the 11th of May. On this glorious occasion, five new pitchers took the centre stage to pitch products they’ve been working.

We proceeded with main activities at exactly 5 PM with Adeniran Oye Ladun opening up the pitching session. Adeniran pitched Hansei, a working prototype of an electronic device that amplifies music sound for good quality listening.

Like Hansei, there are similar products in existence, but Adeniran boasts about the simplicity in their design as well having a price advantage over others.

Charles Okala


The next person that took to the centre stage was Charles Okala. He pitched a startup that seems more like an Airbnb, albeit with a local twist to it., as he calls it, is a platform that lets locals host their extra home spaces or apartments to local and international guests, to save money and discover new experiences.

Kelvin Umechukwu

Kelvin Umechukwu was quickly called upon, and he dazzled us with the possibility of, a platform that provides small and medium enterprises with the technology tools and requisite resources needed to scale at an affordable and flexible monthly cost.

Tijani Sadiq

Once Kelvin was done, Tijani Sadiq came to pitch Workbook. Workbook is a platform that aims to bridge the gap between artisans and their prospective clients.

Olawale Atekoja

The last pitcher on the evening was Olawale Atekoja who came to pitch Seclot, an emergency app for sending a distress signal to pre-registered contacts.

We wrapped up the day around 7 PM, allowing both pitchers and attendees time to engage one another. It was indeed another exciting moment.
